the playground. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. >> and i'm sure there wasn't a lot of action at the outdoor playgrounds today, kind of one of those days you want to stay inside. we've had a rainy evening, too, so things are not going to change over the next few hours. we have a break tomorrow for veterans day and some showers return thursday, but not an all-day rain like what we've seen today. and we have a chilly weekend, and a dry weekend coming up. not going to look like this. still can't see the tops of the skyscrapers. the clouds are low, visibility is going to be getting lower as the wind diminishes, which it's already been doing. 60 degrees now in philadelphia, humidity 90%. pretty saturated out there. 53 in allentown, but closer to 60 as you get closer to the philadelphia area and then towards the shore, almost everybody's right around 60
degrees. you get those uniform temperatures when you have cloudy skies and east wind like that. over the past hour you can see definitely more rain coming up from chesapeake bay and maryland, moving into delaware first and into chester county, delaware county, philadelphia. the heaviest rain and thelsóa steadiest rain back way to the north and west. it's not going to be coming here, but you can see this is not all just light either, some moderate rain at least. not talking about thunderstorms or a flood threat. it's just kind of miserable out there and more of this moisture from the washington, d.c., area swings around during the evening. so here we are at 7:00, we start to get some moderate to heavier rain farther to the north areas that haven't gotten as much rain as delaware, for example, around smyrna, estimates of two and a half inches of rain just early this morning. you can see the clouds hang around as we go through the night tonight and into the
morning. maybe a little bit of drizzle from time to time, but we're trying to break out into some sunshine during the day tomorrow. expect it to stay cloudy for much of the morning and then start to see a little bit more sunshine during the afternoon. that will push temperatures into the mid 60s. so it should be a really nice afternoon after a not so pretty start. if we do see any drizzle or fog, first thing in the morning it's not going to last very long because those winds are coming out of the northwest. then on thursday we see clouds advancing and here comes some showers. not like the steadier rain that we saw today, but we're talking about fairly widespread showers just about everybody getting at least some rain during the day on thursday. so we've got periods of rain and drizzle, little bit of fog tonight, 51 for the low in philadelphia, 48 north and west. during the day tomorrow, it's going to start off kind of cloudy, but some sunshine in the afternoon pushes temperatures
into the mid 60s. the average high is 58 now. so that's good bit above average. then thursday with those showers, not an all-day rain, then it's dry for a while. friday and saturday, pretty windy, and chilly over the weekend. should be chilly but dry for the eagles sunday. >> all right, glenn. we have this story just in. the fantasy sports websites draft kings and fan duel are now illegal in new york. >> minutes ago the new york attorney general ruled the companies are illegal gambling websites. they must cease operations in new york. just yesterday we told you new jersey lawmakers are trying to decide whether those same sites are gambling and not a game of skill. comcast is an investor in fan duel. john clark, what's coming up in sports? >> we're going to hear from the new old eagle going to take jordan hicks jordan hicks' roster spot, that is next. patients across the country have spoken.
this is the xfinity sports desk, brought to you by xfinity. your home for the most live sports. >> hey, i'm john clark from comcast sportsnet. the eagles back to work without one of their best playmakers on defense. rookie linebacker jordan hicks will miss the rest of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. he was such a promising rookie. his teammates said he came in and played like he'd been in the nfl for years. he was the birds' leading tackler, so it is a big loss, but the eagles do have very good depth at inside linebackers. >> jordan did a great job of bringing himself into the conversation of a main rotation guy through just the circumstance of injuries that presented him an opportunity.
it's a shame that he only made it halfway through the season, but in the nfl that's a bad part of what we deal with. >> it's really sad, man, you know, we got to understand that next man up now. jordan was doing a really great job. he stepped in when guys went down and he helped a whole lot. right now, next man in. >> jordan's spot on the roster is being taken by his former teammate at texas, who actually helped recruit jordan there. he's back with the birds again. >> with hicks going on, couldn't come back to philly until yesterday. funny coincidence. timing is great, great to be back with these guys. sucks it has to be jordan, especially as close as jordan and i are back to college, but happy to be back. flyers are back home after the canadian road trip hosting colorado tonight. michael neuvirth got the win in winnipeg to finish the trip and got the shutout. he's going to start for a fourth straight game tonight. neuvirth leads the nhl with
three shutouts, but steve mason is still the guy. >> mace is our number one, you know, we've said that all the way along and feel that way, real benefit for our team is how well he's going and playing. so, you know, i think both guys are ready. >> today executives from phillies pro sports teams got together for a panel discussion. here's andy mcfail talking about the phillies getting up to speed in baseball with analytics. >> it's the teams that aren't talking more about it that i'm worried about. we clearly have been slow to completely adapt, you know, to it, but we're trying to make up for lost time. we are going to try to look at everything. i think that's essential, you know, if you rely on one aspect at the expense of others, you're making a mistake. >> and he says the phillies may consider getting a farm team to campbell's field in camden down the road.
the rain is hanging on. >> rain and drizzle and a little fog. at least it's not heavy rain, flooding rains, severe thunderstorms. it's just damp. and there's the radar showing more rain coming up from maryland, although the heaviest of all is in central pennsylvania, not moving our way. now tomorrow we start off with cloud cover and then some sunshine in the afternoon pushes us into the mid 60s, so a nice veterans day. some showers with the front on thursday and then we definitely get dry, we get chilly, not only for friday, all the way through the weekend. so you can go ahead and make some outdoor plans. it is not going to rain over the weekend. >> all right. >> bundle up a little bit. >> little bit. a lot of people would take that trade, i would say. >> sure. >> weather for today for colder and drier.
